RIGHT OF RESPONSE

The poet forgets
than the rest of the world
also has the right
to feel stale.

That it is not the exclusive territory of the poet
Hell,
the bad night,
rotten love,
the woman who sends him to hell,
rat urine,
nor the sulfur that gets
in the internal organs.

FORCED SILENCE

Lots of words
get stuck in my throat,
as if the fist of a trucker,
forcibly enter my mouth.

I need to throw it up
get it out of me so I don’t drown,
get rid of phonemes
that get stuck in me
when I want to say it all

Or swallow it
and disappear the scared eyes
that look at me.

Anyway,
I even already digested
my own coagulated blood.
